The Chainlink BUILD program is designed to strengthen the Chainlink Network by fostering promising early-stage startups in Chainlink’s ecosystem. Participants receive benefits such as priority access to technical support and new services from Chainlink in exchange for paying fees that incentivize Chainlink service providers and boost the network’s cryptoeconomic security.
One of the latest projects to join BUILD is ThirdFi, a web3 infrastructure protocol offering developer-friendly interoperability and middleware solutions through an all-in-one API. In an official announcement, ThirdFi founder and CEO Victor Lee said enhanced access to Chainlink’s essential web3 infrastructure will allow ThirdFi to optimize its DeFi toolkit.
“We’re excited to join Chainlink BUILD to gain access to industry-leading Web3 services, technical support, and a robust cryptoeconomic model that empowers us to build an interoperable interface between different infrastructure protocols for DeFi,” he said. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration together and we welcome the passionate Chainlink community into the ThirdFi ecosystem.”
ThirdFi has already launched its API products across multiple blockchains including Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Chain, Avalanche, Arbitrum, and Optimism. Numerous DeFi protocols such as Uniswap, SushiSwap, Aave, PancakeSwap, Trader Joe, and QuickSwap have integrated ThirdFi.
ThirdFi will enhance its infrastructure stack by integrating Chainlink Price Feeds in addition to Automation and VRF (Verifiable Random Function). By participating in BUILD, ThirdFi will also receive other benefits including early access to new Chainlink product alpha and beta releases.
With over 40,000 current users, ThirdFi’s team said BUILD will help the protocol gain momentum and advance its mission to onboard a billion new DeFi users over the next ten years.
“We’re confident that through enhanced support, secure off-chain services, and the backing of Chainlink’s vibrant community, we can accelerate awareness of ThirdFi and realize the adoption of a scalable and interoperable interface between different infrastructure protocols for DeFi.”
